Where to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day in Tampa

St. Patricks’ Day 2022 is Thursday, March 17th. According to History.com, “The Irish have observed this day as a religious holiday for over 1,000 years. Boston has long staked claim to the first St. Patrick’s Day celebration in the American colonies. On March 17th, 1737, more than two dozen Presbyterians who emigrated from the north of Ireland gathered to honor St. Patrick and form the Charitable Irish Society to assist distressed Irishmen in the city.”

Americans turned it into a party in the 20th century which “spread to Ireland after the arrival of television when the Irish could see all the fun being had across the ocean.”
